This is a thread to discuss the Khajiit and maybe learn something new about them. I have got this info from uesp, the imperial library, wikia, theelderscrollsonline.com and elderlore.wordpress.com and tried to make a summary of it.


If you see any mistakes in this please tell me.

Official info made by the devs: The population of the proud feline Khajiit has dwindled in recent years following a devastating outbreak of Knahaten Flu. They owe a great debt to Ayrenn, Queen of the High Elves, for her help in restoring order from the chaos that followed the plague. They have a wry wit and a hedonistic outlook, but they are fearsome on the field of battle. They are the strong arm of the Aldmeri Dominion.

The khajiits hail from the desert province of Elsweyr.

History

The Khajiits are one of Tamriel beastfolk, the original inhabitants of Tamriel (many teories exist, i took the most likely). When the Aldmer arrived, the Khajiit already reigned as the dominant culture across southern Tamriel, even if the most lived in the deserts. In the first era, there existed sixteen independent kingdoms in Elsweyr. Unlike the kingdoms of the humans and elves. The Khajiit kingdoms didnt compete for land or Power. Each kinddom specialized in one specific duty, and supplied its neighbors with its bounty in exchange for bounties from the other kingdoms. Ne Quin-al produced skilled warriors, and could for example trade with Torval, with giving Torval warriors and recieve fish and other things from the sea. The dominance of each kingdom was checked by the moons. For example when the two moons were full, Ne Quin-al was in dominance, and when they were half Torval was in dominance. All kingdoms had specific Days of importance and Power.

They kept with this system for thousand of years, But the terrible Thrassian Plague of 1E 2260, who was created by the Sloads of thras, upset this balance forever. It ended with half of the Khajiity population dead. Elsweyr turned from sixteen kingdoms to only two, Pa'alatiin and Ne Quin-al, or Pellitine and Anequina. But this time the situation wasnt peaceful. The Khajiits of Pellitine consider the Khajiits of Anequina to be barbarians, and the Khajiits of Anequina saw Pellitine as decadent and depraved. These two kingdoms fought eachother for centuries, but neither of them gained any appreciable ground. The two kingdoms united in 2E 309 with the marriage of Kiergo of Anequina and Eshita of Pellitine. The province was now finally United and was named Elsweyr.

However after that, their history has been full of internal conflicts among the Khajiits of Elsweyr. The Khajiits spiritual leader, known as the Mane, succeded in bringing Peace to Elsweyr repeated times. Though the Peace never lasted for long. They have also warred with other races, like the Bosmer in the five year war.

Biology

The best description of the Khajiit is that they are humanoid cats. The Khajiit are the only one of the ten races of Tamriel to have fur, and are the only ones along with the Argonians to have tails. They possess a physical hardiness thanks to their long tradition of war and their hard Life i the desert. They are also Quick and very agile, making them skilled theives. The khajiit can also as the cats (its obvious why) see very good in darkness. The khajiits make skilled warriors too. They have also a weakness to sweets....

Personality

The Khajiit are often clever. They are the only race to speak of themselves in third person. For example lets say aKhajiit named Jo'kara is tired, then he will say "Jo'kara is tired" instead of "I am tired".

Society

The Khajiit are divided by two separate ways to live. In the civilized jungles and river basins of southern Elsweyr, with ancient mercantile traditions and a stable agrarian aristocracy society. While the northern dry grasslands have a tribal society with chieftains.

Religion

The Mane is the spiritual leader of the Khajiits. He is a unique breed of Khajiit. According to legend, a Mane can be born only under a rare alignment of Masser and Secunda when a third moon appears in the sky. There has never been more than one Mane at a time.

The Khajiit has a unique religion, and are both revering both Aedra, Daedra and the moons.

Moon sugar: For the Khajiit the sugar is crystallized moonlight caught in the water of the Topal Sea, so the Khajiit Believe when the eat it, they consume portions of their gods. However moon sugar has a negative reputation for outsiders, because it can be refined into skooma, wich is a highly addictive narcotic drug.

Lorkhaj or Lorkhan
(the missing god)

He tricked the Original Spirits into creating the mortal plane. Alkosh (or Auri-El or Akatosh) and the rest of the gods, defeated him and ripped out his heart at the Direnni Tower, the Alkosh shoot his heart away with his bow, into the sea, eventually becoming Red Mountain in Morrowind on the Island of Vvardenfell.
